Free CPD webinars

Events | PPC97 November 2019

This year BPCA trialled running free CPD webinars for all members and affiliates.

The first five webinars have proved far more popular than we could have imagined. In fact, we’ve helped hundreds of people learn something new.

With these successes, we’ve decided to produce a full schedule of webinars for the rest of the year and into 2020.

They’re all free to attend, and if you miss them, you can catch up with them on our YouTube channel or the BPCA website.

What is a webinar?

A webinar is just an online seminar.

Like any other seminar, you can ask questions or chat with the other attendees before the talk, but you do it from the comfort of your own smartphone or computer.

How does it work?

  • Register for the webinar at bpca.org.uk/webinars
  • You’ll get an email from Zoom - our webinar partner with your confirmation details
  • You’ll get a reminder just before the webinar
  • Click the link in your confirmation or reminder email and you’ll be taken to the webinar (if you’re on a smartphone, you’ll be prompted to download the Zoom app)
  • When the webinar starts, you’ll be able to see and hear the presenter and their slides, but they can’t see you
  • You can type a question at any time in the webinar – they’ll be answered at the end
  • If you miss a live webinar, you can watch back the recordings of the webinars a few days later.

Benefits of watching live

  • CPD points get added automatically on BPCA Registered or Basis Prompt
  • Ask questions and get live responses
  • Chat to the other participants in the webinar
  • Stream it live to your phone while you’re on your lunch break.
